The Keystone XL pipeline is on again.
A new president with a different view of America’s energy and infrastructure needs has the project advancing again. Late last month pipeline builder TransCanada submitted a new application for a cross-border permit with the U.S. State Department. This week the company applied for route approval in Nebraska – a key step for a project that will bring hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil daily from Canada and the Bakken region in North Dakota to Gulf Coast refineries.
And with it increased energy security, jobs and revenue to governments – all things President Trump recognized in issuing an executive order that invited TransCanada to resubmit its application with the State Department, while calling for expedited review by Washington.
